The ESP E-II Horizon NT-II is a sustain-lover's dream, with neck-thru-body construction as well as a Gotoh TOM bridge with string-thru-body design. Built in Japan and available with a stunning Tiger Eye Amber Fade finish over its figured quilted maple top, the E-II Horizon NT-II offers a 3-piece maple neck and a mahogany body, an ebony fingerboard, and 24 extra-jumbo frets. Ready for everything from super tight rhythms to fluid leads, this guitar includes high-end components like a bone nut, Schaller straplocks, and Gotoh locking tuners. The sound of the E-II Horizon NT-II comes from a set of outstanding active pickups, with EMG 66TW (neck) and EMG 57TW (bridge) in brushed chrome that offer discrete coil-splitting controls for each pickup. Includes ESP hardshell case.

I check many photos of this particular model. I always wondering does this guitar have a carved top ? Or is it just a light reflection ?

Carl N.

Yes, the light in the image is reflecting off of the carved top of the instrument.

Hi can you explain how the serial numbers work on ESP guitars..I have 2 ESP standards  made in Japan  and 3 LTD .s high end models made in Korea...

Many Thanks, Jack

Carl N.

You can reach out to our service department for information regarding serial number information  customerservice@espguitars.com

Why aren't the frets stainless for $2,000?

Carl N.

Hey Michael, while stainless steel frets aren't a new thing, the demand for them sure is.  Typically these have been reserved for the higher end custom instruments or as an aftermarket addition for the discerning musician.  While these are currently standard on ESP USA instruments we are not offering them on E-II models at the moment.

Greg T.

Any chance of a passive pickup option?

Carl N.

Hey Greg, these will only be available with the pickups shown.  Though any pickup could be installed later if you wanted.


Why is this model $100 more than the blue/purple fade Horizon. What is the difference?

Carl N.

Hey Pitdog, these models use different pickups with this particular one using EMG's newest set.  This will be the reason for the increase in price.
